"Never My Love"

In the 60's my favorite group was "The Association", and one of their top hits was "Never My Love". This youtube video has a mistake in the lyrics, but I like the pictures, they go with the music so nicely.

"Johnny Angel"

If you remember this #1 hit from the early '60's you are a legit "baby boomer"!
This song by Shelley Fabares (from "The Donna Reed Show"), made it to the top of the teen hit charts in 1962. Fabares stared in 3 movies with Elvis Presley. As an adult, she appeared in several tv sitcoms. "Johnny Angel" was her greatest hit.

Vinyl Albums Comeback

Did you hang on to your vinyl record albums?  Most have gone up in value, and collectors now flock to record shows and conventions.

Now, vinyl records may once again be coming back into current production. At least one company still produces them. Music like it used to be! A vinyl revival!

April Come She Will

This is one of my favorites from Simon & Garfunkel, "April Come She Will". A short and sweet song comparing the warmth and renewal of Spring to the surprise and joy of young, First Love.

That's my interpretation anyway, what do you think?

"April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold;
September, I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old."

One of the best Neil Diamond songs, "Stones". Do you remember this one?
The lyrics will touch your heart. Weren't we all "wildflowers" in the '60's?

"Just two wildflowers who grow...on stones."

Turn Around

The year was '68-'69, the movies were "Love Story" and "Romeo & Juliet", it was a time of rEVOLution, and for me, it was a time of awakening and wonder. This love ballad by The Vogues was #1 for several weeks. And it still opens my heart whenever I hear it. Enjoy!

"There is someone walking behind you,
turn around, look at me.
There is someone watching your footsteps,
turn around, look at me
There is someone who really needs you,
here's my heart in my hand.
Turn around, (turn around,) look at me,
(look at me,) understand,understand,
That there's someone who'll stand beside you.
Turn around, look at me.
And there's someone who'll love and guide you.
Turn around, look at me.
I've waited, but I'll wait forever for you to come to me.
Look at someone (look at someone) who really loves you,
yeah, really loves you. Turn around, look at me."

"The Heidi Game"

If you are old enough to love '60's music, you probably remember the classic football game of 1968 known as "The Heidi Game". I still remember it well. It seemed funny to me, but the guys were SO mad!!!

In tribute to the 44th Super Bowl, here is a clip that tells the story of the "catastrophe", fondly remembered as "The Heidi Game".

"A famous American Football League (AFL) game between the New York Jets and the Oakland Raiders, played on November 17, 1968 in Oakland, California. The fame of this game is the result of a decision by the NBC television network to terminate their broadcast with 65 seconds left to play in the game and instead broadcast a pre-scheduled airing of Heidi, a new made-for-TV version of the classic children's story".

Those were the days! Do you remember???

Sidenote: The New York Jets went on to win "Super Bowl III" two months later. (against the Colts!)

"Super Bowl III was the third AFL-NFL Championship Game in professional American football, but the first to officially bear the name "Super Bowl". (Although the two previous AFL-NFL Championship Games came to be known, retroactively, as "Super Bowls".) This game is regarded as one of the greatest upsets in sports history. The heavy underdog American Football League (AFL) champion New York Jets (11-3) defeated the National Football League (NFL) champion Baltimore Colts (13-1) by a score of 16–7. It was the first Super Bowl victory for the AFL. The game was played on January 12, 1969, at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida."

Avatar Song, "I See You"

Like the love ballads of the 60's, the beautiful "I See You", from the soundtrack of "AVATAR", is a song that could easily become a choice for "Our Song".

It really should have been nominated for an Oscar by the Academy Awards committee, but it was overlooked. Although, the movie soundtrack, including the song, was nominated.

Listen to "I See You" written by James Horner and sung by Leona Lewis. What an incredible love song! Share it with someone special this coming Valentines Day! It may become for you both, "Our Song"!

Read the beautiful and touching lyrics from "I See You" on my new "AVATAR" blog:
